Everyday I will be posting a painting I have created or am working on, plus comments, tips, and ideas relating to painting.
Flower Pots at Heathcote
9x12 acrylic on canvas
Saturday, August 4, 2012
9 x 11 watercolor
If someone asked you what are the colors of Summer, what would you say? To me, Summer is about heat and these flower colors suggest warm days! In fact, I used a cooler background to complement the hot colors of the flowers! I used wet into wet technique in this painting and just had some fun watching the colors mingle.
Painting is my passion and I try to paint as much as possible everyday. I love gardening and decorating my home, but when it is hot like it is here in summer, I find my studio is where I want to be! I have also been writing a book about my experiences in the antique shop business. Writing a book is a lot of hard work, what with editing and trying to get one's ideas down in a concise and interesting manner, not to mention the frustrations of using the computer!! I've almost completed it, though. I love so many creative things, including quilting! There just is not enough hours in the day.
